ごくせん


Synopsis


The plot involves Kumiko Yamaguchi, the granddaughter of a Yakuza boss, Kuroda of the Kuroda Ikka. Her parents died when she was younger, and her grandfather has no other descendants, so Kumiko is next in line to head the family business with the title of Ojou. However, her lifelong dream has been to become a teacher. While her grandfather approves of her choice, others in the family want her to become the next boss.
Kumiko (known by her students as "Yankumi") becomes a teacher at an all-boys private high school. Her class is full of delinquents, but she tries her hardest to teach them not just about academics (her subject is Mathematics), but about lessons of life, much like any "dedicated teacher" story. Though she's forced to keep her family a secret from the public, her Yakuza upbringing gives her the strength and the experience to reach out to her students, while also providing comedic relief.

The drama aired on Nippon TV from April 1, 2002 to July 3, 2002. The series consisted of 12 episodes. Nippon TV began airing a second season on January 15, 2005, with several returning cast members (including Yukie Nakama). It lasted 10 episodes. There is also a special episode titled Gokusen Special: Sayonara 3-nen D-gumi (Goodbye 3rd year Class D), it's a sequel to the first season and the prequel to the second season. The drama also was the highest-rated in its time slot when it was shown in the Philippines by the GMA Network, and was popular enough that the network decided to re-run it, and continued to be the highest-rated show in its time slot. In the Philippines, the series ended with the Gokusen special.
The third season of Gokusen began airing on April 19th, 2008 in Japan. Yukie Nakama reprises her role as Yankumi, Katsuhisa Namase as Sawatari, and the rest of the cast that makes up Yankumi's Yakuza family returns as well.

Recurring themes



  • Yankumi begins each season with a long speech about her career as a teacher. On Season 2, she makes her speech in front of a Kindergarten class, while on Season 3, her speech is in front of a class of foreign students in the Japanese countryside. On both instances, she is promptly fired for teaching her students Yakuza slang.
  • When Yankumi bumps into her love interest for the first time without knowing his name, she temporarily uses an object or location as a nickname for him. On Season 1, after meeting Shinohara in a crowded bus, she nicknames him "Sakurazashita-sama" after the bus stop where he departs. Kujo from Season 2 is nicknamed "Burberry-sama" from the Burberry handkerchief he drops after meeting her in front of the school. On Season 3, Natsume is nicknamed "Romeo-sama" after a book copy of Romeo and Juliet he drops on his first encounter with Yankumi.
  • The leaders of each class 3-D are members of J-Pop boy bands. Jun Matsumoto (Sawada in Season 1) is from Arashi; Kazuya Kamenashi (Odagiri) and Jin Akanishi (Yabuki) of Season 2 are from KAT-TUN; Yuya Takaki (Ogata in Season 3) is from Hey! Say! JUMP; Haruma Miura (Kazama in season 3) is from Brash Brats.


Theme Songs


The theme songs for the anime are:

  • "Hontou no Kotoba" - "My Real World" by Foot Stamp (Opening)
  • "Onore Michi" - "On My Road" by Aki Yashiro (Ending)

The theme songs for the drama are:

  • "Feel Your Breeze" by V6 (Ending) (S1)
  • "No More Cry" by D-51 (Ending) (S2)
  • "Kizuna" by Kazuya Kamenashi (insert song) (S2)
  • "Oretachi no Seishun" by Yuya Takaki (insert song) (S3)
  • "Niji (Rainbow)" by Aqua Timez (Ending) (S3)


Episodes




Trivia



  • Noticeably, most of the members of Class 3-D retained the first names of their actors. However in Season 3, all members of Class 3-D but the main 6 members, retain the last names of the past Prime Ministers of Japan.[citation needed]
  • Much of the cast (specifically the "students") later on appeared in various tokusatsu shows. Many of them became Kamen Riders.
  • Kumiko Yamaguchi's name evokes her family business. "Kumiko" (久美子) is a partial homophone to "kumi" and "gumi" (組=group), the usual suffix for crime syndicates (and class groups); it also sounds similar to kumicho, the Japanese equivalent for "crime boss". The Yamaguchi-gumi (based in Kobe) is the largest and most notorious criminal organization in Japan. Her nickname "Yankumi" is the abbreviated of her full name- "Ya" in Yamaguchi and "Kumi" from Kumiko. Her nickname also evokes the word "Yankee", a word used to refer to delinquent youngsters of the bike gang type, especially women (like Arisa Uotani in Fruits Basket).
  • KSCI LA-18 in Los Angeles, CA, broadcast the first season drama untranslated. Season 2 had English subtitles.
  • Shun Oguri, the actor who played Haruhiko Uchiyama, also played as Noboru Yoshikawa in Great Teacher Onizuka. In Gokusen, he is one of the bullies but in GTO, he is the one being bullied.
  • Jun Matsumoto and Shun Oguri later worked together again in the live-action drama Hana Yori Dango (Boys Over Flowers).
  • In the drama, Noda was much different personality wise compared to his Anime/Manga counter-part.
  • In the drama, Uchi is accused of being the purse thief while in the Anime/Manga Noda was accused.
  • Minami replaced Uchi in the fight against Tsuruta in the Anime.
  • Noda's hair style is different in the anime than in the drama.
  • Noda's sister was revealed in the manga as dating Minoru
  • Many of the English voice actors for Gokusen voice acted for Samurai Deeper Kyo
  • The font used for the title is the same as the font for the cover of The Godfather.
  • The Kuroda Ikka and Ooedo Family was based on The Yamaguchi-gumi (based in Kobe) is the largest and most notorious criminal organization in Japan.
  • All high schools Gokusen were set in have names that are a combination of a color and metal: Shirokin means "white gold"; Kurogin means "black silver"; Akadou means "red copper".
